Morning Trip (128)

“I feel that a real living form is the result of the individual’s effort to create the living thing out of the adventure of his spirit into the unknown—where it has experienced something—felt something—it has not understood—and from that experience comes the desire to make the unknown—known. By unknown—I mean the thing that means so much to the person that wants to put it down—clarify something he feels but does not clearly understand—sometimes he partially knows why—sometimes he doesn’t—sometimes it is all working in the dark—but a working that must be done—Making the unknown—known—in terms of one’s medium is all-absorbing—if you stop to think of the form—as form you are lost—The artist’s form must be inevitable—You mustn’t even think you won’t succeed—Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant—there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing—and keeping the unknown always beyond you—catching crystallizing your simpler clearer version of life—only to see it turn stale compared to what you vaguely feel ahead—that you must always keep working to grasp—the form must take care of its self if you can keep your vision clear.”
–Georgia O’Keeffe

  1. The Susie Sie video imo is beautifully done; fascinating to see how much variation and complexity of patterning she has drawn out from what is basically just a set of moving circles. The integration of sound and movement is excellent too. I cannot figure out if the sequence is computer generated or filmed, but either way it works really well. Thank you for posting this 🙂


    • She is! I am still in love with Ansel and tend to find out that many of the artists that I share creative affinity spent time with her. She said many times that people didn’t really know her and thought that they did from things that she wrote. I wonder what they all were like on a daily basis. I expect they had bodily functions just like the rest of us 🙂
